EC 1.14.14.116     
Accepted name: averantin hydroxylase
Reaction: (1) (1′S)-averantin + [reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + O2 = (1′S,5′S)-5′-hydroxyaverantin + [oxidized NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + H2O
(2) (1′S)-averantin + [reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + O2 = (1′S,5′R)-5′-hydroxyaverantin + [oxidized NADPH—hemoprotein reductase] + H2O
Glossary: averantin = 1,3,6,8-tetrahydroxy-2-[(1S)-1-hydroxyhexyl]anthracene-9,10-dione
Other name(s): AVN hydroxylase; avnA (gene name); CYP60A1
Systematic name: (1′S)-averantin,[reduced NADPH—hemoprotein reductase]:oxygen oxidoreductase (5′-hydroxylating)
Comments: A cytochrome P-450 (heme-thiolate) protein isolated from the saprophytic mold Aspergillus parasiticus. Involved in aflatoxin biosynthesis. Does not react with (1′R)-averantin.
